Cascade Sports Car Club has been a meeting place for car enthusiasts of all types Since 1956. We have activities and events for all kinds of cars and drivers. We welcome all makes of cars and the enthusiasts that drive them.


As many of you are aware, Portland International Raceway (PIR) submitted a plan for restricted reopening on May 6, but has yet to receive approval. Additionally, Multnomah County is currently scheduled to reopen on June 12 with it’s “Phase 1” restrictions. Under Phase 1, and without a variance to allow gatherings of more than 25 people this would force the cancellation of our June race and HPDE.
PIR is working very hard to get approval for its plan, however the go/no go may be very close to Cascade’s June 20-21 scheduled race weekend at PIR.
We are reaching out to encourage race entries for the June 20-21 Chicane Challenge XXVIII – Gary Bockman Memorial race weekend! And We Need You.
Please register HERE

Cascade can host this event with approval from PIR and The City as late as June 17. Cascade will notify all entrants of a go/no go decision no later than June 13, but we need to know what entries are possible with this plan.

And as a reminder, Cascade will not charge credit cards until after the start of the event and you have taken the track.

Updates from The Cascade Sports Car Club regarding
 COVID-19 precautions

In response to the evolving health crisis known as “COVID-19 or Corona Virus”, The Cascade Sports Car Club is monitoring the situation carefully.  Our top priority is safety, both on and off the racetrack, and we urge everyone to follow the recommendations set forth by public health agencies. 

“This situation seems to change minute-to-minute. We will continue to monitor developments related to COVID-19 and make decisions based on safeguarding the health of our racers, students, volunteers, and community based upon the recommendations of public health agencies, including  U.S. Centers for DiseaseControl (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and Oregon Health Authority (OHA).”

We are also monitoring the changing schedules at Portland International Raceway where our HPDE and Racing events are held. So far they have cancelled the Annual Swap Meet, which we co-host, but have not cancelled any of our HPDE or Race dates; but that could change at any time. We highly recommend you monitor their website for updates and information.

Please monitor the Geargrinders Rally page on our website for updates on their events.

Until further notice we will not be holding our monthly Board of Directors or General Membership meetings at their usual time and place.

At this time we are planning to go forward with our Chicane Challenge  race on June 20-21. Should it be cancelled all entrants will receive a full refund.



It is with a heavy heart we say farewell to one of the finest people, talented drivers and cornerstones of the PNW racing community. Rest in Peace Gary.



Our 2020 schedules are up. Check the racing or HPDE pages to see the dates.

It’s going to be a great year with all the usual terrific racing and HPDE days, as well as some new ideas we’re discussing. So, get working on your car – the season will be here before you know it!
